Looks great. I am getting ready to paint my Series II but can't find anyone who sells
the rubber that goes under the windshield and around the glass. Where did you get yours?

Thanks for the information. However, I have called MacGregor of Canada three times and emailed them twice in the last two weeks and have received no response. The phone calls only reached their answering service which requested my phone number and promised a call back which never came. My emails detailed exactly what they offer in their online catalog. Again, no response to my emails. At this juncture, I was wondering if they are still in business. Evidently, my only alternative is to try again until I get a response.

Martin is still there. It does sometimes take several days for him to return phone calls. I've found that if you make several attempts that he will remember to call back. He recently finished the trim for not only my current Harrington project but also for another Harrington project for a friend that lives close by. That took awhile for him to complete. Martin is pretty much a one man show so be patient and keep trying. Phone calls seem to work much better than e mails.

I contacted Martin by email in Sept. I got a near immediate reply that he was in the UK and would be in touch when he returned. He phoned in January and I have received what I ordered. He did not have eveything I wanted. I can't remember what was missing. I'll open the package later and see if the SII windschield rubbers (both ) are there.

My car is a S3, so that is available from Sunbeam Specialties (also VB, but I wouldn't recommend that).

Just opened my package. It had both rubber parts. The screen to body rubber was in two pieces, not sure that is correct (and not sure it isn't)..

After closer examination of my purchase, I think the screen to body seal is the part he didn't have.
